Hall Signs Extension

The rumored deal came to fruition today, as the Brewers extended Bill Hall. Here are the terms.

2007: 3 + 500k signing bonus
2008: 4.8
2009: 6.8
2010: 8.4
2011: 9.25 (club option)

Hall gets a guaranteed $24 million, and the total possible value of the contract is $32.75 million.

This is a fantastic deal for the Brewers. I’m pumped about the club option in the fifth year, as it could buy out two years of free agency. I wasn’t even sure if they’d be able to buy out one year. Hall’s production was worth $9.25 million last season, and he won’t even make that for five years.

An official celebration…
